Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi said Thursday he will resign amid a political crisis sparked by the refusal of the Five Star Movement to participate in a government confidence vote.

“I want to announce that this evening I will hand in my resignation to the president,” Draghi told his cabinet.

He said the conditions necessary to carry on with the coalition government were “no longer there” and the “pact of trust that the government is based on has gone”.
